What are you talking about ? History is full of accounts where leftist governments disarm it's people. Arresting a little girl is part of the
conspiracy of the Leftist in the USA to demonize any type of weapon or any thing that can be thought of as a weapon.
History is also full of acounts where rightist governments slaughtered anyone associated with democratic, egalitarian, or left leaning policies. Your
demomization of anything left seems remenissant of the mentality of the Cold War Era.
While I agree that the arrest of this little girl is absolutely stupid, I see it as PC policy gone wild, not necessarily left vs right.
Hell im on the left and advocate gun rights and gun ownership rights for all US and Canadian citizens of age.
The Leftist ( Communist, Socialist ) governments are not economic systems , they are brutal controlling systems forced on the people.
No, Communism is an economic system much the same way as Capitalism is an economic system.
You can have a "closed", communist economy while still having democratic freedoms. Just as you can have an "open" Capitalist economy while having
little to no democratic freedoms.
Socialist systems are rarely pushed on the people. Quite the oposite actually, they are usually the result of social and political agitation against
those that have it all, at the behest of those that have nothing.
Fair wages, healthcare, occupational saftey, the 8 hour works day, child labour laws, these are the fruits of left agitation against an oligarchic
My friend, we may be on different sides of the political spectrum, but we both want the same thing, to live, work, procreate, and be happy. Must we
battle over small differences of opinion?
